Chicago, Leafleting at DePaul University Wednesday, April 16, 2014

The average vegetarian spares about 31 farmed animals each year (not to mention many more wild fish and shellfish), adding up to hundreds in a lifetime. Research has shown leafleting to be very effective at inspiring people to go vegetarian or to reduce their consumption of animal products. By educating the public about factory farming and veg eating, you can personally spare thousands of animals from a lifetime of misery.

If this is your first time leafleting, don’t worry! You can leaflet right next to one of the more experienced leafleters, who will guide you through the process and help make it fun and effective. Stay for as long or as short a time as you like. Look for Brian Pietrzycki, who will be wearing a Mercy For Animals messenger bag.

For more information on this event, please email Brian Pietrzycki, Chicago outreach coordinator, or call 773-368-1043. An RSVP is not required, but it will help us determine the correct number of leaflets to bring. We will also notify you if we have to cancel the event due to bad weather.

Chicago, Chick-Fil-A Chicken Appreciation DayThursday, May 1, 2014

Join Mercy For Animals on Thursday, May 1 to protest Chick-fil-A's cruel practices. Chick-fil-A's jeering ad campaigns depicting cows advising people to "eat mor chikin" perpetuate the horror endured by factory-farmed chickens, perhaps the most abused animals on the planet. 

By having our own Chicken Appreciation Day, we can educate the public about the suffering of chickens on factory farms. We can inspire others to spare thousands, if not millions, of animals and ultimately create a more compassionate society. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help us distribute literature and hold signs. Look for Brian, who will be wearing a Mercy For Animals messenger bag. 

For more information on this event, please email Brian Pietrzycki, Chicago outreach coordinator, or call 773-368-1043.  An RSVP is not required, but it will help us determine how many leaflets we should bring. We will also notify you if we have to cancel the event due to bad weather.

Chicago, Chicago Pride ParadeSunday, June 29, 2014

March with Mercy For Animals as we promote equality for all at the Chicago Pride Parade. Sure to be one of our most fun-filled, raucous, and joyful events of the year, we will march in the parade with an MFA logo banner that declares, “No one is free when others are oppressed,” rainbow flags, bells, and whistles, and have our best leafleters along the sides. Along the parade route we will distribute literature about factory farming and veg eating, reaching many hundreds to thousands of people with our message of compassion.

Join us for the fun and show your support for animal protection and equality! Wear your MFA T-shirt or we'll provide one for you at the event for a recommended $5 donation. Our number in the parade line has yet to be determined. We will meet at the corner of Montrose Avenue and Broadway Street.

We will have plenty of water, but please make sure you bring sunscreen, hats, and sun umbrellas.

An RSVP is required to march in the parade with MFA. Please RSVP by sending an email to Mikael Nielsen, national volunteer coordinator, or call 773-971-3895.
